Heatsink complications leading to PC overheat
I have been experiencing a series of problems with my PC. Two days ago, It was crashing to blue screens every 5 seconds and the fun was making strange loud noise. I opened the casing and did a thorough cleaning, the heat sink and the processor, which covered by most of the dust. The blue screen problem was solved. I then installed a new fun, Rose will cooler “max 3.4 GHz, but the fun still made the same noise and it would refuse to boot.
Yesterday, i found out that the fun on the heat sink was dead. To prevent the overheating, i had to change the computers performance to ” power saver mode”. It would then record a temperature reading of about 60°C on Asus' thermal monitor. On Real Temp's monitor , it recorded a reading of about 50°C The temperature readings are constant, and do not depend on the number of programs being run or the task being carried out.
From what i know, excessive heat for computers is not recommended and may lead to serious system’s components damage, so i rarely use the computer. Right now i have no option of replacing the motherboard it could be the problem. Could the power system be the problem? Or the CPU connector to the fun? Any ideas of what could be the problem? I need your help guys!
